Champion Murray sees title win as just the beginning

Andy Murray may have ended Britain's 76-year wait for a male Grand Slam champion, but the 25-year-old Scot said yesterday he has no intention of resting on his laurels.

Murray will  arrive home today following his historic victory over Novak Djokovic in the US Open final on Monday and plans to talk at the end of the week to Ivan Lendl, his coach, about the challenges ahead.

Having overtaken Rafael Nadal to become world No 3 in yesterday's updated ranking list, Murray now has his eyes on the No 1 position. There are plenty of points to be won in the remaining two months of the season and the year-ending World Tour Finals in London will be his biggest target before the end of the year.

"I want to keep improving, keep trying to win," Murray said. I know how good it feels to win a Grand Slam and to win the Olympics, and how hard it was losing the Wimbledon final. You want to try to win those big matches and big tournaments and I'm going to work hard to try to do it again." MORE

Woeful Wales thrashed in Serbia

Wales were thrashed 6-1 in Serbia last night to leave them bottom of Group A. Gareth Bale's free kick gave Chris Coleman's side brief hope at 2-1 but the hosts were too strong. Scotland also remain without a win in the group, drawing 1-1 at home to Macedonia. MORE

Late equaliser frustrates N Ireland

Northern Ireland were held to a 1-1 draw at home to Luxembourg in Group F, Daniel de Mota equalising four minutes from time after Dean Shiels' opener. Elsewhere, the Republic of Ireland sauntered to a 4-1 friendly victory over Oman at Craven Cottage. MORE

England face battle to defend T20 title

England approach the defence of their World Twenty20 title in Sri Lanka almost as badly prepared as when they won it two years ago. Eight players survive from 2010 but their best player, Kevin Pietersen, is missing and Ravi Bopara is in woeful form. MORE

Evergreen Krone in Doncaster encore

The St Leger meeting gets off to a low-key start on Town Moor, where the star attraction is a rider rather than a horse: the most successful woman jockey ever, Julie Krone, comes out of retirement – again – to ride in a Legends race for charity. MORE

Van Commenee to resign as coach

Charles van Commenee is to step down as UK Athletics head coach following the country's failure to meet his target of Olympic medals. "My decision has the interests of British athletics at its heart," he said. MORE

Cavendish thankful after stage victory

Mark Cavendish thanked the efforts of his team-mates after winning stage three of the Tour of Britain yesterday. "The finish was downhill so I knew I could go pretty early," he said. "I had the perfect lead-out. It was pretty textbook." MORE

Opinion: James Lawton

For much of the ordeal England struggled under the glow of a magnificent Yevgen Konop-lyanka strike. They escaped with a point but it was like something they might have grasped in the wind. MORE
